Corydoras paleatus
Peppered corydoras, Peppered catfish
breeding notes

BREEDING: Not too hard to breed at all - C. paleatus is a substrate spawner (usually in mops, or the aquarium glass). A well conditioned pair will usually spawn after a large water change (50% or so) of somewhat cooler, well-oxygenated water. The fry will take newly hatched artemia once their yoke sacs are used up.

Have you bred Corydoras paleatus? Why not fill in a breeding questionaire?

Fishkeeping Facts and Tips

Avoid tankbusters! Too many tropical fish stores sell small fish that will continue growing until too big for any home aquarium. Rehousing can be very difficult indeed. Avoid species such as the shovel-nosed and red tailed catfish
